A history of success

Dating back to 1997

EXCLUSIVE was founded by Scott Smigler when ecommerce was in its infancy, and coincidentally, so was he. Scott was a Sophomore in high school when he created a network of websites that attracted millions of visitors each month, and ad revenue from “over-funded” startups.

As a fourth-generation retailer Scott was naturally drawn to retail, and recognized the power of the Internet to level the playing field between specialty stores and generalists. Scott helped his first ecommerce client grow from $0 to $10 million in annual sales by 2002, and was the youngest speaker at many industry conferences like Search Engine Strategies.

EXCLUSIVE has grown by leaps-and-bounds since then, without any debt or accepting outside investments. EXCLUSIVE and its sister company GrowByData, LLC now employ 130 people, all of whom obsess about one thing: finding a better way to help you grow.

EXCLUSIVE’s secret to success is simple: it’s people.


Thought Leaders

EXCLUSIVE is home to energetic, smart, motivated, and intellectually curious professionals.



EXCLUSIVE is a learning organization, driven by experts who thrive at the frontiers of ecommerce.



EXCLUSIVE attracts and helps foster leaders who seek opportunities to grow personally and professionally.



EXCLUSIVE creates value for clients by creating a culture that values individual voices, and that uses data to test and adapt..

What does this all mean? There’s no “mailing it in” at EXCLUSIVE.
